    I agree with ElecticSoul921. Al Kooper is a genius. I've always been a big fan of his music and after hearing him interviewed on a 'word' podcast am even more of a fan. He has fascinating insights. Al Kooper's work with the Blues Project and Blood Sweat and Tears has always been amongst my favourite music. His memory of Dylan's electric Newport appearance casts a different light on received history.

    This is a very good version. I am a big fan of the Ray Charles treatment of this song but I really like the way Al Kooper has approached it.
